Ironsong Ultra-Short Six Word Story Contest

I am holding a creative writing contest for ultra-short stories! Your job is to write an ultra-short story of no more than six words. The contest will run for two weeks, and you may enter as many stories as you wish. Have fun!

Goal
Write a six-word story consistent with the Warcraft world.

Duration
The competition will last two weeks. It will be over on May 6, 2010.

Prizes
Three prizes will be awarded, for the winner and two runners-up. Prizes will be distributed after the moot on May 6, at 7 p.m.

Rules
1) Your story may be no more than 6 words long
2) Contractions (e.g. don't, can't, she's) count as one word
3) You may enter as many stories as you like
4) The story does not need to mention Warcraft concepts explicitly, but it must be consistent with the Warcraft world.
5) Submit your stories as replies to this post in "Exciting Events"
6) Friends of Ironsong are welcome to participate

Examples

Here are some examples of six-word stories to give you an idea:

For sale: baby shoes, never worn.
-- Ernest Hemingway

Gown removed carelessly. Head, less so.
-- Joss Whedon

Easy. Just touch the match to
-- Ursula K. Le Guin

Spell complete, the Dark Portal opens.

Forests burn, mountains crumble - Deathwing comes.

Armies assemble, more souls for Frostmourne.

Kil'jaeden defeated, the Sunwell burns again.

The archdruid sleeps, the Nightmare seethes.

Just one more bear- "Ding!" "Grats!"

(More later, when the gnome has had her afternoon nap. Heh.)
